TUMIKIA: evaluation of school- versus community-based deworming on the transmission of STH in coastal Kenya

The TUMIKIA Project aims to determine whether combining school- and community-based deworming is more effective at controling and eliminating soil-transmitted helminths (STH or intestinal worms) in Kenya than school-based deworming alone. The trial will strengthen the evidence base surrounding STH control and elimination. TUMIKIA stands for 'Tuagamize Minyoo Kenya Imarisha Afya,' which means “eradicate worms in Kenya to improve health,” in Swahili.
